Running Errands

ImageI needed a new battery for my watch, so I walked (a really good walk) to Bowers Watch and Clock Repair. I have been going to them for years, since they were in Lindbergh Plaza, whew, that’s a long time ago. (Now they are on Cheshire Bridge)

Then on to CVS, I was looking for a Clorox Bleach stick. If you have never tried these they are great. If you have dirty grout, just squeeze some bleach in there let it sit and rinse it off. CVS does not carry it, so on to Publix, of course, they have it!

It was a beautiful day. Great day for a long walk and lots of beautiful flowers! Enjoy every day of your Staycation!

Decatur GA!

ImageThis is one of my favorite places in Atlanta and when you go you will totally understand why. It’s a great small town feeling with lots of friendly people, just a great vibe! I will revisit often to show you more, this is just the beginning. Squash Blossom Boutique has unique cute clothing, shoes and accessories. It is trendsetting.

The restaurants are part of the greatness! Iberian Pig, awesome memorable meals! Sweet Melissa’s has some great and I mean great breakfast meals. There is one restaurant that has dishes that are craveable to me.

ImageThey have a a lot of dishes with Hatch chiles. They have a green chile roast every year in September. But the thing I love best are the enchiladas, order them and then thank me. The chowder is awesome also! I was hesitant to share, but it is so great, you must at least try it.

That’s it for Decatur today, but I will return and bring you some great info!

 

Tucker Farmer’s Market

ImageImageTucker’s Farmers Market is every Thursday, but on the first Thursday each month, they have Food Trucks and that was tonight! It really was great. They have fresh produce, jewelry, really cute knitted items and some great Pimento Cheese!Imageso, I tasted it and bought it.  It is really really good, very good! Next Tamales, Chicken and cheese, excellent but no photo, sorry. (this is new, I am trying) Okay to wrap it up, The Tucker Farmer’s Market is really fun oh whoops the food was great, I love BBQ and I understand how subjective it can be, but smoke is smoke and tender is tender and this was awesome.I got the pork. It was so great. I will be back!

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Villagio Italian Kitchen (on Clairmont Rd)

ImageImageMinestone Soup unbelievably flavorful, deep strong base with lots of veggies. Excellent start!

ImageSimple Spaghetti with meatballs, the sauce is sweeter than I am used to, but it worked. I could not stop eating it. I had some garlic bread to dunk into the sauce. This is what is left after eating for quite a while. I came to this restaurant when it was Capozzi’s and the food was not nearly as good. 

As I was leaving, taking the front photo, the chef came out and introduced himself to me, Chef Scott. He told me about delicious sounding Friday specials and a Sunday Brunch that sounds outstanding. Give this place a try, I think you will be happy. Let me know what you think also.

A Little Sunday Shopping!

ImageImageImageImageThe Collection at Forsyth and The Forum is the future of shopping in the suburbs. In the burbs it is just outdoor shopping set in a Main Street setting, while intown makes these multipurpose with apartments and condos mixed in.  Restaurants are mixed in for a plus at meal time. The Forum has a really nice restaurant in Grace 1720, the food has been good, I have had service issues more than one time. There is also a Ted’s Montana Grill and La Parilla. There is also a Japanese, sushi and hibachi and an Italian restaurant. While at the Collection, there is Norman’s Landing across the street and a Red Robin and a Cheeky’s which are both very good. There are many more eateries there also.

They have some shops in common, Talbot’s, Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, J. Jill, and DSW Shoe Warehouse! DSW is the best, the back room is where the highest discounted shoes are, but it’s not in the back any more (still good deals to be had!!!).  There are always good sales in the back of every store.

The end of the day you have to stop by Haagen-Daz, what? They have Smoothies…and some yummy shakes. Sit out front and people watch (because the young person would not let you take photos of strangers, bummer). The end to a great shopping day!
